Documents About Yucatán

A collection of interesting documents about Yucatán's Peninsula.

The Text from the Osario in Chich'en Itzá

Updated: Nov 29, 2004 - 05:57

During the summer of 1994, we were in Chich'en Itzá. During our visit, Peter Schmidt
showed up through the new excavations of the Osarios and invited us to take a look at the new texts he had found during his project. Fortunately for us, Merle Robertson had been there before us and had made rubbings of all the texts. We examined both the original stones and her
rubbings, which we found to be an immense help. We have not yet been able to identify dates or names in the newly discovered texts, but we were able to read the text on the pier 4 of the upper
temple. This date has played an important role in the dating of Chich'en, as summarized by Charles Lincoln (1986). Lincoln cited Thompson's original placed of the date at 2
Ahaw 18 Mol, based on the assumption that the date fell within a k'atun named 2 Ahaw. David Kelley accepted this dating according to Lincoln's summary.

Leave No Trace Program Principles

Updated: Nov 04, 2004 - 01:57

The program strives to educate visitors about the nature of their recreational impacts as well as techniques to prevent and minimize such impacts. Leave No Trace is best understood as an educational and ethical program, not as a set of rules and regulations.
